Here's the deal...I love the primer, but I hate the mascara. I've been using the primer and Maybelline's Full and Soft mascara for over a year now and I always get compliments on how wonderful my lashes look. I really wish I could find a primer that didn't come with a mascara so I wouldn't be wasting money on something I won't be using. Oh well...
The only fantasy with this mascara is that Revlon thought it would be a hit !!!!!! It gives no length and clumps my lashes. I do not recommend this garbage.
I love the idea of a primer/mascara duo, and have been a loyal customer to Maybelline's XXL product. However, I decided to try this slightly less expensive mascara, thinking it would supply the same lovely lashes. Well, its not a bad mascara, but Maybelline's is way WAY way way better. This mascara doesn't really produce much of a difference than a regular mascara without the primer feature. What a waste of an extra step. So I'm just going to have to stick with what seems to always work.
I love this mascara and the two-step application. My lashes look great. I've tried plenty of mascaras over the years from cheap to really expensive. Since finding this one, I keep coming back - it doesn't smear; it's easy to remove with soap and water, it looks just wonderful. Works for me, but apparently not everyone.
I had passed over this mascara at $8.99 but friend raved about so much that I went out and bought several when they were on sale. What a waste of money. As other reviewers note, the white primer gets clumpy after a while. It never seemed to stick to my lashes. Just little chunks here and there. The mascara side didn't seem to stick much either and I end up trying to paint the primer clumps. I don't recall the instructions indicating that you should wait for the primer to dry before applying the mascara but I tried to wait and it took too long. The brushes seem like they could give good results with a different mascara. Besides the fact that you could hardly tell I was wearing mascara, these products seemed to be all dried up by the 3rd or 4th use!
I've always liked L'Oreal's Voluminous the best, but I wanted to try something different -- and I chose this one mainly becuase it was on sale. It's OK. I do like the primer, but I think a little of the mascara goes a long way. And this stuff stays on really well! I haven't had an any flaking or smearing at all. It makes my lashes really long, but not quite thick enough. Still, a good buy for the price.
So, I already love voluminous by Loreal, and naturally glossy by clinique, but I really wanted to give this a try. I don't think there's anything special about it. Like some other people have stated; the mascara alone is fine, and the primer used with other mascaras works, but the two together don't do anything that spectacular. To say the least...this mascara wasn't a lash fantasy!
I actually really like this mascara - note - just the mascara. I have naturally long lashes so all I really want is volume and curl for my eyelashes - and that's exactly what the mascara end of fantasy lash does! It manages to separate them and make them so thick and voluminous people ask if I'm wearing fake lashes!! I almost never use the primer because even if I let it dry for a long period of time, it still ends up clumping a bit. I love it love it love it. This is my ds alternative to the pricier benefit Bad Gal mascara if I can't get my hands on it.
Yuck, yuck, yuck! This is the ultimate spider-lash mascara! It made my eyelashes long but unbelievably stringy-looking. I tried just the mascara and it seems that it is the problem, as it made my lashes spidery on its own as well. I then tried using the primer with a different mascara, but it just made my lashes a sticky mess. I can't think of a single good thing to say about this mascara.
Not a fan. The primer is worthless. Gloppy and white. I just ended up using the mascera end until it was gone, but even that was nothing fancy or special. I won't bother to buy this again.
